Asshole Of The Day
Asshole of the Day, December 10, 2013: John McCain
by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)
At Nelson Mandela’s memorial service today, President Obama and Raul Castro shook hands. They didn’t see each other out, but Obama was greeting every one of the dignitaries. He made no special effort for Castro. Some people might call it good manners, but not John McCain:

But McCain said Obama should not have extended his hand to Castro.
"Of course not," the senator said when asked. "Why should you shake hands with somebody who’s keeping Americans in prison? I mean, what’s the point?"
"Neville Chamberlain shook hands with Hitler," he said, referring to the British prime minister’s infamous handshake with the German dictator as Britain was negotiating Germany’s takeover of the Sudentenland. The agreement paved the way for the spread of Germany’s military across Europe.

To hear John McCain tell it, President Obama, with one handshake, just gave away southern Florida and most of the Caribbean to Cuba, which will in a few years lead to World War.
But maybe, Senator McCain, the President was just being polite at someone else’s party. No one loves a guest who comes and picks a fight with another guest, especially at a funeral. And since you’re smart enough to know the difference, even if you choose not to, well, that means you’re the one without the manners.
It is John McCain’s first time being named Asshole of the Day.
